Vanilla Mint Tea by Golden Moon Tea

Company Description: 

Vanilla Mint is a smooth and refreshing blend of both green and black loose leaf tea with fragrant mint leaves and rich vanilla bean pieces. Delicious hot or iced, serve by the pitcher or in tall glasses with a sprig of fresh mint for a naturally sweet refreshment.

Review:

Simple. Mint & Vanilla.
Why do I always think of toothpaste when I smell Mint tea’s?
I have no idea, but this was pretty refreshing this morning, so I will give it a thumbs up. I did have that sprig of mint that wakes you right up and I enjoyed the balance of mint vs vanilla but you could tell that flavors were constanly battling in my mouth.

I will say that the harshness of Mint defeated the delicatness of vanilla even though it was pretty well balanced.

Nice tea 🙂 Funky smooth!

Tea Rating: 78/100

An eventful tea that kept me hanging on until the last drop, the flavor battle was interesting although I would have liked more vanilla than mint.

Super Chocolate by David’s Tea

Company Description:

On the surface, this seems like a delicious organic chocolate tea with a nice hint of cinnamon. But take a closer look and you’ll find that it’s actually an arsenal of flavenoids and other immunity-enhancing compounds. That’s because it contains both green rooibos and green tea, two impressive sources of antioxidants. So while you indulge, it’s secretly fighting free radicals and other bad guys.

Review:

This tea is pretty much how the company describes it, a chocolate aromatized tea with just the right amount of cinnemon. I was pretty happy with this cafeine free tea, it’s really one of those mood boosters that leave you wondering how did they get that unbelievable aroma of chocolate in an organic, cafeine free tea. I never add sweetener to tea, so maybe that’s why it wasn’t as sweet as I would have liked it, but it was still pretty interesting.

Tea Rating: 68/100

This Green Rooibos blend was interesting and had a great chocolate aroma, however the sweetness was not present to my liking.

Oh Canada – David’s Tea

Company Description:

Looking for a taste of Canada? Try this red rooibos tea. It’s sweetened with (what else?) maple syrup and sprinkled with delicious maple leaf candies. Plus it’s 100% diplomatic (well, caffeine-free) and tastes great in both our official languages. With green rooibos, honeybush, caramel and toffee bits to shake things up. A truly authentic Canadian experience

Opinion:

This rooibos is fantastic. It has this great maple syrup aroma and a sweet backtaste without being sugary. The smell of this tea could fill up a house with a magnificant smell that catches the attention of everyone. I reccomend this tea to be served not too hot, but not too cold.

Rating: 82/100

Elegant aroma, unique flavoring, and an all around delicious rooibos
